You're in the right place. This access-anytime online course is for you.


The Home Mushroom Laboratory

On this 13-module instant-access course you'll learn to:

  • Clone, use spores and grow living cultures from almost any mushroom
  • Expand cultures for growing a limitless supply of mushrooms
  • Clean up contaminated cultures
  • Select genetics for the fastest and best-quality grows
  • Keep your favourite cultures forever by storing mycelium in culture 'slants'

What my students are saying:

"Alex has a great personality and shows his love for the subject very clearly.  The information is amazing.  You won't regret taking this course!"

- Joris A.

"All is well explained and the videos are awesome, never missing a step.  Congratulations Alex - I am a fan of your course!"

- Joao C.

"Fantastic. Alex, your enthusiasm is absolutely inspiring.  If all teachers were like you, we would have colonised Mars a long time ago (see what I did there?) I thoroughly recommend this course."

- Lutz S.

Turn mushrooms into living cultures inside a plastic box – so that you can grow a limitless supply of any mushroom you want.

Join me in this course as I set up a budget mushroom laboratory on my living room table, using a Still Air Box (a plastic box with arm holes in it). I'll be cloning and spore-printing supermarket mushrooms to show you how to create clean living cultures on petri dishes, in liquid culture solutions, and in 'master slants' for long-term storage.  I'll show you the step-by-step procedure from mushroom through to grain spawn so you'll never need to buy cultures or grain spawn again!



This is NOT a mushroom growing course - our focus here is on creating and expanding mushroom cultures to make grain spawn.  If you want to learn how to grow mushrooms please check out my other courses and come back when you've caught the bug.

After the Home Mushroom Laboratory, you'll never need to buy mushroom cultures or grain spawn again!

I'm Alex Field

After hearing how useful mushrooms can be for improving physical, mental and spiritual health, I set about learning to grow them myself.  I was shocked at how difficult it seemed and confused by the conflicting advice I found online.  After lots of failed grows and experiments I learned what works and what doesn't and found the easiest and cheapest methods to grow mushrooms at home, fast.

Now I use what I've learned to help people just like you grow their own medicines easily, quickly and cheaply. It doesn't matter how good you were at science at school - I'll teach you the easy steps to make magic with mushroom cultures!
